The Ah Kua Show

Leona Lo is a 35 year Singapore transsexual who's active in the theatre scene both locally and recently in New York. She staged a one person 3 act performance called "The Ah Kua Show".
It's a stage adapation of her autobiography, From Leonard to Leona, A Singapore Transsexual’s Journey to Womanhood, which was first staged in Singapore in August 2009. This year, the play opened at the New York International Fringe Festival in late August 2010.
The point of this being mentioned here is that transsexuals are fully capable of leading "normal" lives and people like Leona are making every effort to make themselves understood to the general public, who by and large, haven't a clue what they're about. Watch the video below for Leona's take on her life.
Her blog for the show is here: http://ahkuashow.wordpress.com/
